Origami Pocket Tutorial


I can’t believe it, I’ve actually created a tutorial within one year of saying I would! Since several of you seemed interested in how I made the origami pocket for this dress, I went about trying to re-create the pocket yesterday. It required a few tries, but I think I got it.


Below, you’ll see step-by-step instructions. I didn’t serge/zig-zag the edges because they would all be hidden, but it’s probably not a bad idea to do so. One other note: in the original pocket, you can see fold lines that create a diamond shape in the middle that adds to the coolness factor (exhibit A above), but that was due to my willy nilly folding when I was first trying to figure out how to make the pocket. Turns out I couldn’t re-create those folds exactly. I think the pocket looks mighty fine without those fold lines.

Here’s the tutorial, and I hope it’s helpful!
